WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. The graffiti that once stained the stone walls under the bridge on Hamilton Avenue are once again clean.
The Bronx River Parkway Reservation Conservancy donated $3,000 to help clean the graffiti from the bridge, which sits over the Bronx River Pathway in White Plains, according to a press release from Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino.
Tri-State Soda Blasting used powerful jets of water mixed with baking soda and fine glass to remove the stains. The crew used larger pieces of glass in the mixture on more difficult spots.
We are so fortunate to have such a great volunteer organization like the Conservancy here in Westchester helping to keep this area beautiful for all who use the trail throughout the year, Astorino said. I applaud their community spirit and thank them for their generosity.
The Bronx River Parkway Reservation Conservancy was formed in 1997. County Parks Commissioner Kathleen OConnor also praised the organization.
Since its inception, the Bronx River Parkway Reservation Conservancy has provided support and assistance in helping to help maintain and preserve this jewel in the heart of Westchester, OConnor said. We thank them and look forward to their continuing partnership.
